At the Mac counter the sales girl, explained to me how she makes black eyeliner stay on, by first applying it all inside the eye. Then she takes black eyeshadow powder and puts it on the lining of the waterline and it stays on forever? Has anyone here really tried this and does it work?

Whenever I use black e/s and then use my liner, it definitely stays A LOT longer than liner on it's own. I can say she's right there. It's just a matter of making sure you don't get excess e/s in your eye.

The excess eyeshadow on the eyelid would not be good. You use an angled brush for that? You lightly dust the lid right?

I heard that too, something about it can cause infections and permanently color the tear duct. Anyone know if thats rumor or fact?

Yes, I heard of this before!

I normally line my eyes with liner 1st then apply MAC carbon e/s on top of it...

They say it's actually good for your eye...Now I'm a bit nervous... Anybody know the ingredients? Or maybe I'll do sum research...

So I did sum research on this and found 2 sites with info. Here are the links:

Blocked Tear Duct, Tear Duct Obstruction - visionchannel

Virtual Pediatric Hospital: CQQA: Eyelid and Tear Gland Problems

Happy reading girls!

i had forgotten to add the quotes that motivated me...

Hey Aquilah, is that last brush from Posh?

I was on their website(I assumed poshcosmetics.com) looking for it, but I didn't see any brushes.

Yes I have used blacktrack on the waterline. It's good it stays on for a long time. But I was trying to find out if there were other techniques.

I've heard the only safe liner to use inside the waterline is kohl pencil. I don't know if this is true or not but...better safe than sorry, right?

Posh aka UpStage aka EOB is all the same brand, and they're made specifically for CVS and Rite-Aid/Eckerd. I'm trying to find them again so I can get one to a co-worker for her liner, but the Eckerd by my job doesn't have them.
